The crop top trend is cute, but when you are a 32 years old mother, you can’t dress like when you were in your 20’s. I mean you could, but you don’t want to anymore. Your style changes, your fashion goals too. However, I love the tie-front shirt, especially when combined with high-waisted jeans. The collar keeps the shirt classic, and the tie lets you show a sliver of stomach. This cute polka dots top from Shein (for $10!) convinced me to show my belly again!
The denim shorts with floral embroideries, the bohemian white shirt, the straw handbag…this look brings us to Saint Tropez, in the South of France ! Shop the look or similar items at the end of this post..
When your outfit matches the decor…I could not dream of a better location to photograph these tropical pants! I found them at Zara last week, and can’t stop wearing them, wether it’s with sneakers, flat sandals or in this case heels. I also wanted to introduce you to The Noces, a Malagasy ethical designer that creates handmade raffia bags. Straw and raffia handbags are so trendy this summer, it’s the perfect occasion to support local craftsmanship and buy a unique piece!
A little taste of summer and holidays with this Reformation floral dress, one of the best investments I’ve made so far this season…shop the look or similar at the end of this post!
Fun fact: this is my Mother’s Day present. Not from last year, no no…It’s my 2017 Mother’s Day present, which is in 2 months…that shows how much I love this dress and needed it as soon as I saw it (I just needed a good excuse to get it 😜)! It’s a perfect silk slip dress for the Summer, with a sexy and feminine cut, the perfect length, a gorgeous nude color, from the Parisian label “Rouje” (I already introduced you to this brand created by Jeanne Damas here). Now I just need occasions and courage to wear it, because I am not really used to dress that sexy…Who wants to go party?
While everybody is preparing for Coachella in LA, I took a trip to Palm Springs last weekend, enjoying the calm before the big storm of the music festival. This place can be so peaceful and breathtaking! We shot this gorgeous Fabric Hunted and Collected ikat striped jumpsuit at the bottom of the mountains, and in the Mirage House, an art installation by Doug Aitken that overlooks Palm Springs and the desert, and takes the form of a mirrored ranch house.
Because I often wear low-cut tops and strapless dresses, my hubby makes fun of me saying that we French women don’t even bother to wear bras…(ahahah, another great cliché about us). WRONG! I discovered Kissbobo bras, strapless and adhesive silicone cups that you stick on your breast for an invisible yet very effective result.
How often do you find heels in which you can walk more than 5min without silently suffering and wishing that you could just throw them in the first garbage bin? Since I became a mother and that I traded my “cute girl” outfits for everything that’s “COMFY” and “PRACTICAL” (two words that go hand in hand with maternity), I became very, very demanding when it comes to heels.
Last week I took Jules to La Chouquette, a new French pastry that opened on Melrose. Chouquettes and I share a real love story, it’s the kind of pastry that brings me back to my childhood: they look like mini-puffs, they can be filled with cream or just plain, but in both case they are the most delicious treat to eat for breakfast or for a snack, and they feel so light that I could eat dozens! Jules was wearing his new sweater from Mini and Moi, a mini-collection sweaters with adorable pointy hoodies created by my friend Melanie. Not only do they look so cute, but the fabric’s incredibly soft, and they’re made in LA!
I have a tendency to forget about my clothes after wearing them for one season…I know it’s bad, really bad, and that’s why I recently took everything out of my closet to sort it out (I applied this very useful method from one of my clients!). Unsurprisingly, I “re-discovered” items of my wardrobe that I had forgotten about while they were only from last Summer (SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!), like this deep-V neck dress from Anine Bing, or my oversized Iro sweater.
